The 2020 American Music Awards are less than a month away, so it’s time to reveal the nominations. Some of the biggest stars in music are among the nominees this year.
The American Music Awards will air live on Nov. 22 from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. The awards show will air at 8 p.m. on ABC. Just a handful of weeks before the show, Dua Lipa, 25, helped reveal some of the nominations on Oct. 26 on Good Morning America.
The first category to be announced was the coveted Artist of the Year category. Past winners of this major award include Taylor Swift, 30, Bruno Mars, 35, Ariana Grande, 27, Justin Bieber, 26, and more. During the 2019 show, Taylor was honored with the Artist of the Decade award. See the list of nominations as they are announced below.

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been plenty of amazing music this year. Taylor surprised everyone in Aug. 2020 by releasing her eighth studio album, folklore. The album became the top-selling record of 2020 and is the only album of 2020 to cross 1 million albums in pure sales in the U.S. The Weeknd, 30, dropped his fourth studio album, After Hours, in March 2020. The album was one of the biggest streaming hits of 2020.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the ceremony won’t look like it normally does with all the stars coming together into one theater. However, like many other awards shows, the AMAs will find a way to make the show go on. The ceremony will feature marquee performances and signature breathtaking moments — all done safely, of course.
